Your project is in capable hands.
I'm Christina Dubois, and I believe in the ability of well-crafted words to communicate everything from our rawest emotions to our most complex thoughts. My goal is to help authors produce their best work and fine-tune their writing and its presentation so that readers are drawn into the story and eager to follow it to the end.
I have been a writer, editor, and designer for 30 years, and I love what I do. Since grade school, when I discovered that I had "a way with words," I've been developing and broadening that skill. My bachelor's degree from The Evergreen State College focused on journalism and photography. Early in my career I worked as a reporter, photographer, and editor for a weekly newspaper. After joining the staff of a small publisher in the late 1980s, I had the opportunity to master the roles of assistant editor, proofreader, line editor, managing editor, art director, production editor, and chief editor. While my main responsibility was producing a quarterly magazine, I also edited books. Meanwhile, I had the good fortune to be introduced to desktop publishing when the very first Macintosh computers came out, and I've been honing my graphic design skills ever since. My greatest satisfaction has always come from seeing a book project through from beginning to end. Happily, now that I'm self-employed, I'm free to make working on books my main focus.

I live with my partner on Vashon Island in southern Puget Sound. Our children are grown. I spend my free time reading, swimming, gardening, going on rambles with our golden retriever, and making mosaics.
